Flowers, Personified

Have you ever wondered what flowers would look like if they were human?  J.J Grandville, a French cartoonist, did! He used his creativity and imagination to create a series of floral illustrations in his “Les Fleurs Animeés” giving flowers some personality and character. These were first published in 1847.
